Exhibition | CERN Micro Club | 1-30 September

The CERN Micro Club (CMC) is organising an exhibition looking back on the origins of the personal computer, also known as the micro-computer, to mark the 60th anniversary of CERN and the club’s own 30th anniversary.


CERN, Building 567,
R-021 and R-029
01.09.2014 - 30.09.2014
from 4.00 to 6.00 p.m.

The exhibition will be held in the club’s premises (Building 567, rooms R-0121 and R-029) and will be open Mondays to Thursdays from 1 to 30 September 2014.

Come and admire, touch and use makes and models that disappeared from the market many years ago, such as Atari, Commodore, Olivetti, DEC, IBM and Apple II and III, all in good working order and installed with applications and games from the period.

Club members will be on hand to tell you about these early computers, which had
memories of just of a few kilobytes, whereas those of modern computers can reach several gigabytes or even terabytes.
